Abstract

This chapter describes a new and emerging type of research and writing support for junior faculty members. The Academic Writing Institute was born of a collaboration between academic librarians and tenured faculty at the campuses the library supports. Grant funded, the purpose of the academic writing institute was to: 1) provide junior faculty with an overview of the services offered by the library that can help to facilitate their research processes; 2) introduce methods for documenting research findings in the 21st century publishing environment; and 3) provide a forum, led by tenured faculty, to enhance participant knowledge about the publishing processes associated with their specific disciplines. This new paradigm allows for other academic librarians to explore new methods by which the campus library can support faculty members with the research and publishing components of their promotion and tenure requirements.
